Hello, everybody. I’m back from my vacation. It was one of those times in my life where I feed my own soul with sustenance. I attended the Teacher’s Graduate Class for students of Eschatology. This is my 29th year of the study, and my 23rd for teaching it. It hardly seems that long to me. I love the TGC, as we nickname the class. It’s a wonderful reminder of who I am, what I understand, and what still needs being brought up the next notch. Keeps me humble and loveable.
The World of Within website continues although the webmaster was on vacation last week too. I came home to 18 voice mails and 180 emails. I’m slogging through them as fast as I can.
I picked up lots of tidbits at the TGC and here’s a good one:
There’s no future in history. This, courtesy of Bruce Smith, the Director. I really liked that. I thought that we large folks hold on to our history, don’t we? We itemize all that’s happened to us and we wonder why we struggle with the weight issues? Well, if you continue to think what you’ve always thought, you’ll continue to get what you’ve always got: that same, hefty body. So if you want a different future, let go of the old history. Think something different, like this: I love my new, smaller body. It’s lithe, light and limber.
If you can make yourself think this and really block all your old messages to yourself, you will be able to convince yourself that it does exist as a reality at least in your mind, and from that point, if you continue thinking it, your body will change. But you have to do the new thinking because There’s no future in history.
